The North West’s first-ever ‘drop in’ dentistry boutique The Dental Cafe has landed in the heart of South Liverpool following a six-figure sum investment.
Taking inspiration from successful London-based practices, the state-of-the-art venue located on St Mary’s Road has been devised to offer increased accessibility with the added bonus of no waiting list. Headed by Clinical Lead and Director Dr Clare Robinson, The Dental Cafe is the sister site of Garston Dental Practice, which has been a firm fixture in the local community for more than 60 years.
Clare said: “The Dental Cafe has been established to offer the people of Liverpool something truly unique when it comes to smile management. Unlike a traditional dentist, we’re acting as a ‘Prevention Centre’, aiming to restore and protect through three core dental services surrounding oral care, hygiene and cosmetics, with revolutionary Airflow treatments available in a number of made-to-order flavours such as Orange, Berry, Tutti Frutti, Mint, Cherry, Blackcurrant and Neutral.”
She continued: “The idea of The Dental Cafe came to light after noticing a growing trend for walk-in dental hygiene and cosmetic boutiques in London. Ultimately, we want our patients to feel as though their dentist appointment is more like a visit to the hairdressers or a coffee shop which inspired the name and our ‘menu’ of treatments. Not only does our new venue’s aesthetics help patients to feel at ease when visiting, our fantastic team, some of whom who have been with the existing practice for more than 20 years, put attentiveness at the forefront of everything that they do.”
To combine dentistry excellence with increased accessibility, a select range of treatments are available at The Dental Cafe, all of which are clearly priced with no underlying additional fees. With ‘Short’, ‘Tall’, ‘Grande’ and ‘Venti’ options available, treatments comprise Scale and Polish, which is a classic dentist favourite responsible for the removal of plaque build-up and banishing stubborn tartar; Airflow, which uses advanced technology to clean teeth and gums with a powerful yet controlled jet of water, compressed air and fine powder particles, together with professional Boutique Whitening.
Clare added: “While the younger generation do tend to be more savvy and relaxed when it comes looking after their teeth, a trip to the dentist can often be a daunting experience to many people. To help pass on this positive cultural shift throughout the generations, we have created an inviting non-intimidating space that goes against the typical clinical aura. We hope that our genuine and much more flexible approach to dentistry will be well-received by the North West and will encourage more dentists across the nation to follow form.”
